The true feel of Australia staying in a deluxe Bed and Breakfast which is a working sheep farm. All the furnishings are from the original era. Breakfast starts with local home made dishes prepared by Lyn, fresh baked bread and fruit, then if you have room, eggs. You get the choice of dinner selections, all prepared like a gourmet restaurant,...

We are so lucky to have been booked into Stranraer Homestead by our travel agent at Down Under Travel. Our hosts ,Lynn and Graham Wheaton, were wonderful. Graham still farms the land that has been in his family for 4 generations. The rooms are huge and beautifully appointed with comfortable beds and beautiful toiletries. We had an ensuite bath with...

Kangaroo Island was the finale of my wonderful time in Australia. I planned my tour through Kangaroo Island Odysseys and basically just looked at what they thought was the best and booked that. I traveled solo and stayed for two nights. It was my first time staying in a Bed & Breakfast. Graham picked me up from the airport, as...

When we first arrived at Lynn & Graham's house, for a one night stay, first impressions were "this is nice" but once inside, it was WOW!! We we're greeted with a huge wood fire and did we need it after some really cold times on K.I. Our room was huge and beautifully furnished. Lynn greeted us with a choice of...

This is a 1920s homestead on a sheep station lived in by three generations of the Wheadon family. The current owners, Graham and Lynn are delightful and wonderful hosts. Lyn is a superb cook and Graham will take you out on night rides to look for wildlife. The bedrooms are large and very comfortable with all possible details attended to....

My wife and I stayed at the Stranraer Homestead for two nights during our recent visit to Kangaroo Island and can only give it our highest recommendation. Not only was the room comfortable, the meals delicious, and the location beautiful & serene, the hosts Lyn and Graham were amazingly gracious and engaging. While Southern Ocean Lodge may give you utmost...

My husband and I stayed at Stranraer Homestead one night between two days of touring the island. We don't generally gravitate to B and Bs as we like the anonymity of hotels when we're on vacation. However, our travel agent booked us here and we are so glad she/they did. We truly feel as though our stay here enriched our...

I can't add anything to the previous reviews, other than to say that we stayed there last night during the wettest couple of days in SA history (!) so couldn't do the nocturnal jeep tour as we'd have needed a lifeboat, but the food and convivial company more than made up for it. Breakfast this morning was better than the...

We spent one night at Lyn and Graham wonderful B&B and we couldn't dream something more for our magic stay in Kangaroo Island. The B&B is beautiful, the atmosphere is lovely and Lyn and Graham made our stay even more special with their hospitality, the lofty cooking and the time dedicated to us. The night was magic and the morning...

We had a fabulous stay at the homestead. Lynn and Graham are wonderful hosts. The rooms are very comfortable and the guest lounge is a beautiful space to relax with a roaring fire. We had dinner one night and the food is restaurant quality. We were joined at dinner by the other guests who were a young Italian couple. Graham...
